City of Manassas, VA . . . Today, Feb. 7 at 4 p.m. the City of Manassas launched its newly redesigned website to the public at www.manassascity.org<http://www.manassascity.org>. The new website is fresh, accurate, simple and transparent – FAST. The homepage is less cluttered, yet offers more information that is easily accessible with graphic image buttons. Site visitors can now see all information under the top menus by hovering over that button. This is the new mega menu feature.
“We are excited to be launching our newly redesigned website today and hope you will take a moment or two to visit manassascity.org,” said City Manager John A. Budesky. “This new site is a great communications tool for the City of Manassas.”
On the new site, there are three buttons housed on every page where site visitors can pay a bill, report a concern like a pothole orstreet light outage, and see their tax dollars at work, which promotes transparency and government openness. The new social corner feature helps visitors who are not on social media see what’s being said on the City’s Twitter feed. At the bottom of the screen there are seven quick access buttons to the City’s most visited pages on the website. This should make finding things much easier.
The expanded footer at the bottom of the page has quick links to important areas of the website, like the City Code and directions to City facilities. Also on the footer of the site is the new Google Translate feature allowing visitors to translate the website into more than 60 languages. The City web team worked with the web team at Civic Plus to make this website more user friendly and more simple to navigate.
